Metropolitan’s 10-year regeneration project in Edmonton, which was completed in partnership with L&Q, followed the transfer of 1,312 homes in Edmonton Green from Enfield Council in 1999.
The £85 million regeneration programme, known locally as Green Horizons, replaced four tower blocks containing 734 homes with 272 new low rise homes and gardens. An additional 450 homes were built in two new developments, while a further three tower blocks containing over 500 homes were fully refurbished.
This award winning scheme was recognised by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) in 2009 when it was awarded the Leadership of Place award. The HCA commended the improvements in life on the estate, which had previously been plagued by issues ranging from prostitution and drug dealing, to anti-social behaviour and a very poor physical environment
